I think we should play the following course challenges in no special order.
Mt. Airy
Idlewild
Banklick
Harbin
TurtleCreek
Monroe
Gulley
Aj Jolly
Oxford

This would be a change from use Burnett where we set up extra holes.
This would also get rid of big boone where we set up holes.

As a past CC challenge TD and Director it would be nice not to have to do any of the extra work.

What do others think?

Oxford has been somewhat of a headache the last couple of years.

We're taking 2008 off in honor of your service to the club. I like Oxford but I really do want to see Gulley and Monroe added. I'm all for the change.

How about the Williamsburg course it has been steadily improved this year?

I am for not playing in Oxford, too. Its not that great...

I also agree with "not having to setup baskets" idea...

How about we played something like Boone if it got redesigned...

How's the 18 in Williamsburg? I have not played them but people have had good feedback to me on it...

It's probably best left up to the CCC. They'll have a hard enough time anyway, without trying to please everyone.

If you go strictly by attendence numbers, the past few years AJ has been the least attended. Oxford is the most popular and Boone is not far behind. To do this right, IMO do not pull the popular CC's. The bar could be 50 attendees and, as much as I like the course, AJ it has never had that many. Less than 50 competitors and cut it the next year. Mt. Echo was somewhat popular, but that took 18 temps. Heritage was not very popular, and Burnett is right there with Idlewild. The numbers say pull AJ and try a new couse.....I vote for Turtlecreek because Gulley already is PDGA.
Maybe also take 3 CC that are not already in a PDGA event and make them C tiers. Maybe Oxford, Boone, and Monroe, the next popular?

Williamsburg should be considered and with the club running it, should workout
fine. (I may have to move the still though)

What do you mean Oxford has been a headache the last couple of years...This is a good problem to have. How many other cities run a series like ours and have a hard time picking which courses to play. It would be nice to throw some of the other new courses into the mix this coming year.

Use Monroe and Turtlecreek together for one tournament, since they are so close (10-12 min.), and combine that Course Challenge with Dayton's BID (the tournament would count toward both the CCS and BID series). I think it could be a huge turnout, drawing from both cities, maybe even necessitating AM's starting on one course and Pro's on the other. Plus, the Dayton guys are already receptive to the idea.

Feedback?

Steve, I like that idea as well. I also would like Oxford to stay, it's a hike but it a fun course in a beautiful setting. Speaking of beautiful settings, you gotta keep AJ in the course challenge series, in the fall.... Beautiful

Two courses on the same day and commingling our series with Dayton? Great ideas! I would love for that to happen with Columbus too but those are mostly sanctioned events aren't they?

Sounds good.
This "could" spur some additional interest in multi-city competition.

What I meant by somewhat of a headache at Oxford the last couple of years is baskets having to be brought and all of the construction, not getting to play some of the original holes, having to set up a different course once we got up there, that's what I mean.

Construction is done on all holes except hole 8 which should be done by next years course challenge. The rest of the temp holes are because of the turnout. We generally have a ton of people that show up to play the CC. I believe they come in droves because they don't get to play the course on a regular basis.

I know it'll all be hashed out at a future meeting, but how about this lineup?:

Mar. Mt. Airy
Apr. Big Boone- it's a tradition, let it stay
May Oxford- like John said, having to add holes to accomodate traffic is a GOOD problem
Jun. Williamsburg- fun course, worth a trial in the series (replaces Burnett)
Jul. Monroe/Turtlecreek- CCS/BID showdown
Aug. Harbin- Pig warmup
Sep. Idlewild
Oct. A.J. Jolly
Nov. Banklick

Just leaving out Gully because its use for C-tiers.

since everyone is wanting to add dollars to open... why not charge more for non members and add that to open? we have lots of newbies and its not that big a deal when you're playing novice

It's nice to go off predetermined charts. It's also nice to keep the novice fee consistant to encourage more newbies.

Can the charts be modified to %'s for different ranges of cash added instead of specific $$ amounts or is that too complicated?

Novice attendance indeed seems to be on the rise.
